It was really a get-away - airplane from manila, a little jeepney ride from the airport to the boat port, an hour boat-ride and finally we're in Lagen Island! All the views were scenic may it be fronting the resort or the sea. We were greeted with refreshing cold towel and drinks. Our room which was located on the 2nd... More

I came here to just rest for a night and to cap off my Palawan trip. It was just a beautiful place. The boat transfer alone offered a great view of the islands and it was already worth what I paid for the entire package. The service was great. The staff, everyone of them, knew my name and showed that... More

We'd been to Miniloc, also part of the El Nido group, and about 10 minutes away from Lagen by boat, a couple of years ago. We were impressed by the quality of service, the range of activities, and the location. Of course, we were not impressed by the price which we thought was absurd for what we got. But we... More

My mum and I visited the Lagen resort in late June and stayed 3 nights LOCATION: selling point of the Lagen. It has sustained its original natural beauty compared to various other resorts in countries such as Bali or phuket. ACTIVITIES: they offer lots of water activities which are all free except for the diving. The diving was an amazing... More

Lagen is already beautiful on its own, with a perfect view of the surrounding islands in Bacuit Bay (Miniloc, Pangulasian, Entalula Island), but what makes it truly special is the warm, accommodating and efficient service of its staff. From arrival to departure, they will make you feel completely at home with nothing to worry about. In the 3 days we... More

This island is about a half hour boat ride from Miniloc Island. This island is even more lush than Miniloc Island. It has a beautiful pool area and you can go on lovely walks on the trails. The food is exceptional and the staff and service is over the top. They are most accommodating and bend over backwards to look... More

Lagen Island is the place to be because: 1. The resort is almost complete. The room (water cottage) is so relaxing while you view the school of fish just right at your room's terrace. The facilities are well-maintained, not to mention the pool that gives an alluring view of the sea,the library (I want a version of this in my... More

The royal treatment started at ITI predep lounge where we were served light snacks before walking the red carpet (!) to board the 50-seater plane. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by a singing group, and again, were served refreshments while waiting for our luggage. We then took a 1-minute jeepney ride to the jetty. We were greeted with lively singing... More

We went to Lagen via land trip from Puerto Princesa. It's another alternative for those who don't want to go through the straight flights. It takes around 5-6 hours by bus/van from Puerto Princesa to El Nido. It was a wonderful bus trip experiencing the view of rural life and bay sights throughout the land trip. We went straight to...
